Linux 3.1-rc3 Kernel Released Without Much Churn
Linus Torvalds announced the Linux 3.1-rc3 kernel last night. Overall there isn't a whole lot that's been changed in this development kernel over the past week.
The Linux 3.1 kernel has a number of new features, but for some hardware there's a new power regression.
Among the 3.1 work are Nouveau Fermi improvements, Intel Sandy Bridge performance optimizations, OpenRISC architecture support, a Nintendo Wiimote HID driver, and Intel Poulsbo enhancements.
In the Linux 3.1-rc3 release announcement, Linus also praises his new Intel laptop for being able to handle building the kernel better while travelling (i.e. during LinuxCon 2011). His new laptop is presumably one of the (wonderful) Sandy Bridge notebooks. Below is the -rc3 release announcement for Linux 3.1.
It's a day late - I was just too hungry tired after the DM class to release it yesterday. But there it is, all fresh and new.
